Torrey Pines Gliderport in La Jolla is the last remaining launch for California gliders that is perched right on the coast. About 15 years ago, SOHO honored Larry Fogel and his son for their work that added this breathtaking site to the National Register of Historic Places. Now a group headed by son, Gary Fogel, is committed to enlarging its historic boundaries to include essential flight approaches, which are threatened by development. This will probably be an ongoing struggle because of the rarity of open space in an area dominated by the University of California and research facilities, and we know our winner is in this fight for the long haul. For ongoing dedication to preserve a fully functioning Torrey Pines Gliderport, we honor Gary Fogel and the Torrey Pines Soaring Council with the Cliffhanger Award.
